Incredible View; Great Music; Hungry for a Bite

I feel bad not rating this place a 5. There are few views to parallel the honeymoon views of the ocean and the sunsets. Priceless. The piano player, Steve, is perfect. The drink selection and wine choices are wonderful. It is no fun to have to leave to get a taste of some food. Maybe there is... read more

The views and the piano player is worth sitting for a few hours in the afternoon! It is pricey but very nice and relaxing.

Check it out, you'll love the ambiance with the Christmas music, the lights, the Christmas trees, the roaring fire in the fireplace. There is ample seating, valet parking and the people watching is part of the entertainment.

The Montage is the only place I’ve been where I would consider the lounge area to be a “destination” hangout. I have often come here after having dined elsewhere, and the vibe has never failed to impress. The view is great, the seating is comfortable, the service makes me feel high-class and the piano music is a welcome plus. Notes:... More

I have been here many time with friends for an after dinner glass of wine and dessert, but the main reason I visit this exquisite hotel is because of the ambiance and the view of the ocean from just about every location on the property. My favorite spot in the hotel is the fire pit just a few steps away... More

Fantastic view, nice wine list, not over the top, rather understated elegance with friendly service.

Attentive, warm, funny, polite...how is that for starters?!!! The staff at the lobby lounge went out of their way to make us feel at home... brining drinks, cigars, pizza, water....The view is beautiful even at night, and there is an talented singer in the lounge. He can be experienced earlier of course....

End your evening with drinks at the Piano Lounge in the Lobby of the Montage. They have an amazing drink selection and wine list. The pianists are great and always take requests. The atmosphere is wonderful, great outdoor scenery and people watching inside. Snacks (nuts and chocolate biscotti bites) served with your drinks. Want more? Just ask, the staff is... More
